Vantage Vue - Additional Anemometer

Post by jasonmfarrow »

It is possible with the Vantage Vue console to add the Davis 6410 anemometer via the David 6332 remote transmitter and get the Vue console to take "wind" values from the 6410 anemometer via the sensor setup on the Vue Console. I'm thinking of doing this as my current wind setup is a little too sheltered and masks the actual windspeed.

Has anyone done this? If so did the Meteobridge (Pro/Nano/SD) correctly use the wind value from the 6410 anemometer rather than the ISS anemometer?

Yes the Vue console can not use additional anemometer kit.

Yes it can. You can add a 6410 and 6332.

Correct, the anemometer kit is the only additional transmitter kit the Vue can use.

Now with the Pro/Nano/SD the "typical" setup with Vue+ 6332 will make the added anemometer the main anemometer in lieu of the ISS, with RF then the 6332 can be configured as Wind Tx which also replaces the anemometer in the MB but not the Vue

Matt, thank you. I was hoping as much. The second option is to swap out the VUE ISS for a VP2 ISS which comes with the remote anemometer and means I can optionally add the Solar and UV sensors. Is it correct to suppose that, in this instance, although the console will not be able to display UV/Solar detail, the NanoSD should still record the information from the VP2 ISS?

I've just read this in the VUE Console manual
Evapotranspiration, solar radiation and UV index measurements are available only when the Vantage Vue console is “listening to” a Vantage Pro2 Plus Sensor Suite or other Vantage Pro2 Sensor Suite in which a solar radiation (and a UV sensor, for UV index) has been installed and “VP2 ISS” has been selected in Screen 6 of the Setup Mode. See “Screen 6: Configuring Transmitter IDs” on page 9.
So the answer is yes!

With a standard VP2 ISS then that will support Temp/Hum, Rain & Wind, Yes you could add Solar & UV to the VP2 ISS and the NanoSD would simply look at that as an ISS

One clarification though, when you say the VP2 ISS comes with the remote anemometer ... are you referring to the simple fact that the VP2 anemometer is cabled to the VP2 ISS not a remote anemometer Tx (as such)? If the cabled anemometer then yes.

The NanoSD will behave exactly like a VP2 console, supports the same (all) optional Tx kits, with full Repeater options on all Tx ID's

The NanoSD talking to a Vue ISS will only talk to an additional Wind Tx like the Vue console does. NanoSD will work with Temp Only, Humidity only, Temp/Hum only Tx's and Rain only, Leaf, Soil, Soil/leaf Tx's up to the max number of Tx's as long as none of these additional sensors are part of a Vue ISS, other than Wind only from a Vue
